Following up their last single “Enigma”, Slumberjack comes through with another beautiful scorcher. Fueling emotions with cinematic sound production and help from Silverchair’s Daniel Johns, “Open Fire” creates uncontrollable feels to every listener.
“Nah Tell Dem” hits you in you bumper with a nasty dancehall rhythm. Sanjin vocals are digitally charred up to perfection while Major Lazer’s Walshy Fire and Salvatore Ganacci control the boards on this minimal gully creeper. Don’t sleep!
It was only a matter of time before Party Favor gave in to his calling and made a full-out Jock Jam. “Bust Em” is a highlight reel editor’s dream song and a total floor filler in the club. Get ready to rip your trap arms straight out of their sockets!
Back for yet another enormous release, NGHTMRE’s vision of RL Grime’s latest track, “Aurora” is one of many colors. While maintaining the tracks sense of mystery with dark overlaying vocals, NGHTMRE has infected this remix with an insurmountable sensation of energy. Amazing follow up to his self-titled EP; keep a look out for more things NGHTMRE on Mad Decent!
Plucked from the tropical rainforests of New Hampshire, here’s a nice dose of JSTJR’s baile funk-influenced music on his Green Light District EP. The first track sees JSTJR linking up with our favorite little alien Snappy Jit for “Throw it Back”, a definite party starter. The next track, “La Jungla”, puts JSTJR’s drum programming to test, a ton of rhythms in here that float effortlessly along the line of perfect groove and total insanity. Next up “Piranha” brings together JSTJR & DJR in a horn–filled, jail rail riot along the Amazon river. Closing out the EP JSTJR sends us off with “Underground”, a bmore slash baile funk banger with vocal bend for eons. JSTJR you done outdid yourself here.
Opening up Ghettotech to a future generation, Wuki unleashes “Make It Clap (feat. Dances with White Girls)” his modern twist on classic Chicago Booty House music. It’s weird for a track to be so refreshing and upbeat but still so hard that you won’t know what hit you.
FKi 1st today announces he’ll release 1st Time For Everything, on May 20th via Mad Decent.

Now, FKi 1st delivers an eclectic compilation of his own songs with this 6 song release and a new video for his song “For What It’s Worth” featuring Mac Miller-associate NJOMZA.
FKi (Fuckin Kickin It) caught the attention of label head Diplo in 2011, who helped introduce them to the world via their Transformers In The Hood mixtape. Since then FKi has been tapped for production by everyone from Jeremih to Travis Scott, CL and Ty Dolla $ign. With this release, FKi 1st tapped viral hitmakers Post Malone, Makonnen and NJOMZA and newcomers Danny Seth and Elkka, to create a body of work that features his production as well as his songwriting and smooth vocals. 1st Time For Everything also pays tribute to a friend, the recently passed ATL rapper Bankroll Fresh.
